Back to Work and E. Elliott Gets Suspended

The past couple of days have meant inservice for me as a teacher. We meet and discuss curriculum updates; the bonds of team members begin knitting while working on a common project. We have four days of building inservice next week, and then we start August 21. Teachers, play ball!

Perhaps now E. Elliott will realize that he has to behave a certain way since he is in the public eye. I want him to figure it out now. Six games hurts my Cowboys' offense, yet it has taken an inordinate amount of time for the league to take action. This is a head-scratcher.

First Take

I did laugh while listening to Stephen A. Smith explode about Jay Cutler. Poor lamb. I also saw Cutler's statement about not needing to be in cardiovascular shape as a quarterback. Sigh.

As a recent (read since 1977) Rangers fan, it will be sad to see Yu Darvish battling against the Mets tonight, but now he gets to work on his batting in the NL. As a lifelong Dodgers fan, I am happy though. And Vin Scully is STILL the only voice of the Dodgers.



NFL

My Dallas Cowboys won last night, 20-18, and my family is happy to have gridiron on the menu. I wish the NFL would finish up their investigation into E. Elliott's shenanigans. Tsk! Give him a suspension for a game or two to send a message. End of story.

NHL

Hats off to Mike Fisher, the Predators player who retired the other day. Best wishes to you in your renewed purpose off the ice.
